Seems the controversial Bonner County Property Rights Council lists a California foundation as its source for legal authority. On its Web site, the Property Rights Council links to "Pacific Legal Foundation Legal Authority Letter." The 2-page document, written by principal attorney Paul J. Beard II, reads in part: "Our research indicates that California permits local governments to institute a Property Rights Council. We are not aware of any California law that prohibits, or substantively limits, the ability of a city or county to do so. Quite the contrary. Given the recognition and protection that the California Constitution affords property rights, the establishment of a Property Rights Council would only help to ensure that local decisions do not unconstitutionally6 infringe upon those rights."

Question: Isn't it a bit odd that a Bonner County entity would claim proper authority to exist based on the opinion of a California foundation and law?
